What Employers Need to Know About the NY HERO Act | Webisode Series | Part 1

The NY HERO Act creates new workplace safety standards that every private employer in New York will have to follow. These standards govern a wide variety of topics, including health screening, masks and PPE, handwashing, surface disinfecting, social distancing, quarantines, and ventilation.

The HERO Act takes effect soon, so it is essential for employers to learn about the new responsibilities the law creates. Join us for a free webisode featuring expert guidance from Barclay Damon to learn:

  • What these new rules and regulations are
  • How to comply with the safety standards in your workplace
  • How to manage the newly-mandated workplace safety committees
  • How to protect yourself from liability

The presentation was led by Bob Heary, Barclay Damon’s Labor & Employment Practice Area Chair.
